Wakefield Poole's Boys in the Sand wasn't the first gay porn film, nor was it star Casey Donovan's screen debut. It wasn't even the first gay film to be be shot on Fire Island. But its runaway success and crossover appeal marked a turning point in the nation's growing gay consciousness and collective pornographic fantasy — not to mention establishing Wakefield Poole as one of the leading figures of the new movement. That said, BOYS IN THE SAND holds up as a lush, heady, and yes, fully versatile romp through the salt-breeze, sand-bar idyll of Fire Island, that gay oasis just a couple of hours away from Manhattan. Over the course of this week's episode, we'll take a look at the unlikely career trajectories and chance circumstances that led Wakefield Poole and Casey Donovan into the adult film world — and each other. We'll also dispel some myths about the film's production and explore the groundbreaking marketing and distribution campaign that fueled a genuine  groundswell of intrigue and fascination. By the end of the show, you'll understand while we still seem to be reckoning with the impact of BOYS IN THE SAND five decades after its original release.

This episode figures prominently in the award-winning 2005 documentary film Murderball. Now for our feature story: Visitors to Newport's ornate gilded-age mansions will need to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 before being admitted starting Monday. According to The Preservation Society of Newport County, visitors who purchase tickets or memberships onsite will be asked to provide proof of vaccination at time of purchase, People who already have tickets, and members, must provide proof of vaccination at the entrance. The rule applies to people age 5 and older. Starting January 15th, the Preservation Society will also require visitors to the mansions to provide proof of a COVID-19 booster shot for all those eligible to receive it. The same requirements — which also include face coverings indoors — will also apply to employees, including volunteers and interns. CEO Trudy Coxe said in a statement: “We continue to monitor the latest developments regarding COVID, and we intend to be flexible and responsive to evolving conditions. Our goal, first and foremost, is to help protect the health of our visitors and our staff." The nonprofit Preservation Society oversees 11 historic properties in the city, including The Breakers, The Elms and Rosecliff.

Don was born in Westerly and lived most of his adult life in New York City, returning to Westerly 10 years ago. Don will be dearly missed by his partner of 47 years, George, his sister, his niece, his nephew, great-niece, his loyal friends and cousins, whom he enjoyed spending the Christmas holidays with. If you met Don, you were not likely to forget him. Quirky and unique, Don carved out a life filled with all the things he loved. Music from one of his vintage Victor Talking Machines would often be heard at his door. His apartment was filled with records, books, films and memorabilia that he collected over a lifetime. Don had a generous spirit, a kind nature, a passion for good conversation and a love of all things antique. The Balla and Cardounel families wish to thank Pace of Westerly for helping Don and his family navigate this last very difficult chapter in his life with compassion and dignity, and to Dr. Sarah Petrides at the Westerly Hospital along with the nurses and CNA's who treated Don with the utmost care and respect during his final days. Don's favorite saying was "your health is your wealth". Truer words were never spoken. Thank you for taking a moment with us today to remember and celebrate Don's life.

A convenient mini-meal, Daily Gut & Brain” is available now at the CVS Pharmacy in Wakefield. Now for some trivia. Did you know that Rhode Island native, Albert Henry Soar was an American football running back and defensive back in the National Football League who went on to have a long career as an umpire in Major League Baseball? Soar played nine seasons for the New York Giants, and caught the game-winning touchdown pass in the 1938 NFL Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers at the Polo Grounds. Now, we turn our feature story…. Gov. Daniel McKee said Rhode Island is expanding its coronavirus testing and vaccination capacity as record numbers of new cases continue to strain the state. To get more people vaccinated, and to give residents a chance to get their booster shots, the state will reopen a mass vaccination site at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence by mid-January. He acknowledged that many people are frustrated with long waits for tests, and long turnaround times, a situation he witnessed firsthand in Central Falls this week. McKee said “We can do a lot better." The state has hired a second lab to accelerate testing and to turn PCR tests around more quickly, and a third one will be brought online to get testing turnaround times down to 48 hours, officials said. Testing sites will also be open on New Year's Day rather than stay closed for the holiday, he said. Rapid tests are also being distributed to high-risk areas. Several protestors could be heard at some points outside the briefing shouting and blowing air horns. The processing of tests for nursing homes and schools continues to be prioritized. The governor also said that there are no plans to delay the start of school reopenings after the holiday break and no plans to switch to remote learning, although some districts “may take a phased approach” to bringing students back into classrooms. For example, students in the Providence public schools will return to in-person learning after the holiday break on a staggered basis. “This phased approach will allow the district to conduct testing as students return to prevent potential exposures”. Pre-K, kindergarten and grades 1, 6 and 9 are now scheduled to return on Jan. 3. Grades 2, 3, 7, 10, and 11 will return on Jan, 4, and grades 4, 5, 8, and 12 will return on Jan. 5. The district, the state's largest with about 22,000 students, said all teachers and staff, regardless of the grade they work with, will be required to return in person for the first day of classes. Stay up to date on this story and more at westerlysun.com Today we're remembering the life of Joan C. Anderson of Westerly. Born in Warwick, she was employed in assembly at the former Leviton Manufacturing in West Kingston for over 12 years until the factory closed. She previously was a head waitress at the former Howard Johnson's Restaurant in Hope Valley for 10 years. Joan was a former member of the VFW Post #12, North Kingstown Ladies Auxiliary.

Did you know that Rhode Island native, Albert Smith is a former football player, coach, scout, and executive? He served as a part-time scout for several NFL and USFL teams before joining the Buffalo Bills in 1986, serving as a scout and executive for them for 14 years. With the Bills, the team won four AFC Championships. He joined the San Diego Chargers in 2001 as a director of pro personnel, and was promoted to general manager and executive vice president for them two years later. He stayed with the Chargers until being fired following the 2012 season. Happy New Year's Eve! Next, an event that you should know about… It's New Year's Eve. And now is traditionally when we'd tell you about all the parties and fun things going on in the community. But Covid is spreading again.

Tomorrow at noon, The Warm center is hosting their annual penguin plunge at the Windjammer surf bar to raise money for those in need in summer rhode island. Tickets are $25. We'll see you there! Today we're remembering the life of Joseph B. Bliven, loving husband and father. Joe was born in 1942 in Westerly. During his youth, Joe was known by his middle name Brian. He had four daughters by his first marriage and on July 14, 1974, he married the love of his life, Alice combining their two families into one. Joe enjoyed working with his hands and spent most of his professional life as a press mechanic, most notably for Harris Seybold and Dartmouth Printing. He also worked as a machinist and after retirement, spent many hours in his workshop, making beautiful wood creations to sell at craft fairs. He was especially proud of his intricate marble machines. In 1978, Joe and Alice moved to Enfield, New Hampshire with their six children. Joe loved working with large animals and spent many years traveling in New England with his oxen as a member of the New England Ox Teamsters. After a move to Vermont, Joe owned horses and learned to drive carriages for competition. Late in his life, Joe and Alice went on a "great adventure" and lived in Greensburg, KY for several years until Joe's health made it necessary to move back to be nearer family. Joe was a kind and humble man. He was always willing to show and teach about things he knew, or things he did, but never one to brag of his accomplishments. Always the quiet one in the conversation, Joe never drew attention to himself but willingly shared his wisdom with those who needed it. Joe is survived by his wife, his daughters, his sons and many grandchildren and great grandchildren, his mother, and his brother. Thank you for taking a moment with us today to remember and celebrate Joe's life. Lastly, remember that reporting the local news is an important part of what it means to live here.

Now, for our feature story: Republican members of the state's bipartisan redistricting commission want the Connecticut Supreme Court to reconsider its decision to tap a Stanford University law professor to help redraw congressional districts after the group couldn't reach a bipartisan agreement and missed its deadline this week. The four commission members, all state legislators, filed a motion that requests Nathaniel Persily not serve as the court-appointed expert or special master and that two special masters instead be appointed “to preserve the public's confidence in the fairness of the redistricting process.” The motion came hours after the state's highest court issued a notice announcing it had appointed Persily, who previously served as special master in 2011 during the last reapportionment process when Connecticut lawmakers also couldn't reach a bipartisan agreement on congressional district boundaries. The Republicans noted that Persily's name was not on the list of three possible special masters they had submitted for the court to consider. However, he was mentioned publicly by Democratic Senate President Martin Looney as someone the Democrats would recommend to the court. Ultimately, the Democrats did not submit any names. The court has not yet responded to the Republicans' motion. According to a notice issued Thursday by the State Supreme Court, Persily is ultimately required to submit his plan to the justices on or before Jan. 18. The court will then accept submissions up until Jan. 24 and a hearing before the court is planned for Jan. 27. The court is expected to file its redistricting plan with the Office of the Secretary of the State by Feb. 15.

Did you know that Rhode Island native, Bertrand Shurtleff was a pro football offensive lineman who spent three seasons in the NFL with the Providence Steam Roller and the Boston Bulldogs after playing for Brown University? Later he was a professional wrestler, teacher, public speaker, and author. Now for our feature story: Members of the Town Council have rejected a request seeking to have each of Chariho's three towns pay for a third of the permit fees for the construction of the Maddie Potts Fieldhouse at Chariho Athletic Stadium. Hopkinton is now the second of the three Chariho towns to refuse requests to reimburse the Maddie Potts Foundation for fees already paid. Council Vice President Sharon Davis and councilors Scott Bill Hirst and Bob Marvel all voted to deny the request during a meeting on Monday evening. Council President Steven Moffitt Jr. and Councilor Michael Geary were unable to attend Monday's meeting. Each of the three council members expressed different concerns with the matter and who should pay, but all three were in agreement that either Chariho or the Town of Richmond should be responsible for sorting out any confusion and settling the matter. The fees were paid for by the Maddie Potts Foundation after Richmond officials said the town's policies did not allow for it to waive building permit fees. Davis, who led the meeting in Moffitt's absence said: “When the motion was approved to move forward with this project, it was made clear that there would be no use of public funds on this project. Paying for this would constitute use of public funds. As far as I am concerned, the foundation was supposed to pay for everything, and that was what everyone agreed to. That's how it should remain.” All three officials, who spoke against the measure before voting to deny the request, said they have nothing but respect and admiration for the Maddie Potts Foundation and what the organization is doing. They said volunteers and family have been wonderful in working with the towns and providing nonprofit services for the school community. The concern, however, was that perhaps the town should not have charged fees for a project that will improve the value of public property, or the foundation and Chariho School District should have agreed that the district would pay those fees before getting underway on the project. “My concern is that the school district won't pay these fees and they have been put on the town, but this project directly supports the students and the school system,” Marvel said. “We have an opportunity here that is worth it, but I think the School Committee should be willing to front money for this.” Inflation and building costs have skyrocketed since preliminary estimates were provided, which led to a 100% increase in building costs. When the project kicked off, Maddie's mother, Stephanie Potts, said the foundation was looking at an estimated $600,000 build. The projections now call for a $1.2 million price tag to complete the work.

Today we're remembering the life of Ralph “Tony” O'Connell, M.D., husband, father, grandfather, friend, psychiatrist, and educator. Born in Manhattan, he grew up in the Bronx and Larchmont. Married to Jane O'Connell for 58 years, he was a genuine and devoted New Yorker. He was intellectual, with a dry and sometimes irreverent sense of humor, a steadfast faith, a curious mind, and a generous heart. A lifelong sailor, he taught sailing at the Devon Yacht Club in Amagansett. He was a music lover who enjoyed opera, classical music, and The Beatles, and who enthralled many generations of Burke and O'Connell children with his seemingly effortless ability to play piano by ear. A graduate of the College of the Holy Cross and an M.D. from Cornell University Medical College, he received a fellowship at Oxford University Medical College and completed a surgical internship and psychiatric residency at Saint Vincent's Hospital where he was chief resident. He was a captain in the United States Army Medical Corps and Chief of Neuropsychiatry at Ireland Army Hospital in Fort Knox. After residency, he was vice chair and clinical director of Psychiatry at St. Vincent's until 1996 when he was appointed Provost and Dean of New York Medical College, where he had been a faculty member since 1980. Prior to his association with New York Medical College, he was Associate Professor at Cornell University Medical College. He published extensively in scientific journals and authored many book chapters and papers and served as the editor of Comprehensive Psychiatry. He was a member and president of many societies, clubs, associations, non-profits, and charities.  Tony was active at the Misquamicut Club in Watch Hill and enjoyed swimming and sailing his beloved "Aunt Dolly" in the Atlantic and walking on the beach. He made a tradition of swimming on Memorial Day, and sometimes New Year's Day, "to make sure your heart was working." He will be remembered for his sense of humor and intellect, his values, and finely tuned moral compass, his love of dogs, and all things family. Thank you for taking a moment with us today to remember and celebrate Tony's life. That's it for today, we'll be back next time with more!

You're listening to the Westerly Sun's podcast, where we talk about news, the best local events, new job postings, obituaries, and more. First, a bit of Rhode Island trivia. Today's trivia is brought to you by Perennial. Perennial's new plant-based drink “Daily Gut & Brain” is a blend of easily digestible nutrients crafted for gut and brain health. A convenient mini-meal, Daily Gut & Brain” is available now at the CVS Pharmacy in Wakefield. Now for some trivia. Did you know that Rhode Island native, Bobby Sewall, pro football wide receiver. He played college football at Brown University and was recognized as one of the best athletes in Ivy League Football history. Sewall scored more points than any Ivy League player during his tenure at Brown. As a sophomore against Dartmouth, he tallied 18 catches, 15 rushes, 4 touchdowns, and threw a 48-yard touchdown pass. It was the best individual performance in the history of the Ancient Eight. The 18 catches in one game bested the entire nation (at all levels) that season. He played professionally for the Tennessee Titans, the Jacksonvilee Sharks, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now, we turn our feature story…. If there is one service that has grown ever more important in helping meet the town's food insecurity concerns over the past five years, it's the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center's food pantry. When the shelves are full of recently donated or purchased inventory, the center bustles like a small town grocer on a Friday morning, with staffers packing up food for residents in need and supplying parents with supplemental weekend food for their children as part of the PNC's backpack program. Down the hall, clients are able to take advantage of a household goods “store” that provides health and beauty products, jackets, bathroom essentials and other similar products. The variety of options and filled-to-the-brim shelves tell two different stories. The first is that “feel-good, holiday classic” of community members giving back — the other, a less warm-and-fuzzy tale of the growing need for assistance. PNC Executive Director Susan Sedensky said: “When I started as executive director, in 2017, people who used our services seemed to be ‘hidden.' Our region is geographically so beautiful, and many neighborhoods are wealthy, and as a result, most people seemed unaware that there were people living in their own community who were food insecure”. She continued: “Since COVID, the general public seems to be more aware that local hunger exists. People seem to realize that kids, many who go to school with their own kids, may be food insecure and are in need of food for the weekend when school meals are not available.” For clients of the PNC, efforts over the past five years have led to ever-expanding opportunities. When Sedensky took over, those who received assistance were able to come just once per month. That expanded to twice per month, and the backpack program was introduced prior to the pandemic. Then the public health emergency forced a significant change in the center's operations when community needs skyrocketed and state regulations forced the PNC, as it did so many other organizations, to close their building over safety. To keep the food pantry available to residents, it also meant moving forward without volunteers. The PNC had previously relied heavily on retirees who had the time to help but shifted immediately to hiring paid staff and providing curbside assistance so that services remained available. Those staff members are and will continue to be an important part of operations moving forward, Sedensky said. Once vaccinations were available, she said the center also saw a rise in volunteers from a new group of residents who became aware of the need as a result of the pandemic and their own experiences. More importantly, she said, business owners and residents continued to provide generous donations to meet the growing needs. “It just resonated with people. The pandemic made them feel, and in some cases even see first-hand, that this could be anyone.” Stay up to date on this story and more at westerlysun.com Today we're remembering the life of James Wilgis. He was the husband of Carmela Wilgis who predeceased him in 2020. Born in Birdsboro, Pennsylvania, he devoted his life to serving in the US Navy as a submariner, including overseas during the Vietnam War, later retiring as an Electricians Mate Master Chief Petty Officer. Jim then graduated from URI and worked at the Underwater Sound Lab until retiring. He was a life member of the Westerly Yacht Club, and also a member of the U.S. Power Squadron earning a full certificate. Fishing and boating were his passions, but he loved to spend time with his grand and great-grandchildren at family gatherings.

Now for our feature story: Rhode Island airports have received the first portion of funds from the $1 trillion infrastructure deal. U.S. Senators. Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse and U.S. Reps. Jim Langevin and David Cicilline said the fiscal 2022 funding from the infrastructure bill totals about $9 million, which can be used to upgrade facilities and improve airport operations. The state's airports will receive about $45 million from the bill over five years. President Joe Biden signed his hard-fought infrastructure deal into law in November, declaring that the new infusion of cash for roads, bridges, ports and more is going to make life “change for the better” for the American people. The bill will bring a total of more than $2.5 billion to Rhode Island to rebuild the state's physical infrastructure, stimulate economic growth and create jobs. Rhode Island's main airport, T.F. Green International Airport, is getting $6.5 million of the $9 million. Westerly State Airport and Block Island State Airport are each slated to receive about $1 million. The rest is going to Quonset State Airport, North Central State Airport and Newport State Airport. “Our airports are important economic engines for the state,” Reed said in a statement. “This infusion of federal funding will help airports improve passenger experience and accessibility, replace aging infrastructure and upgrade terminals and facilities. This is a smart investment in enhancing connectivity and creating economic opportunity.” Langevin said that while the state has some of the best airports in the nation, they've been awaiting overdue renovations for years.

A state investigation that brought together 36 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies and led to charges against 23 individuals who have all since been found guilty for various roles in an organized drug-distribution ring was recognized this week with a national Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces award. The U.S. Department of Justice recognized 10 individuals with the OCDETF honor.

U.S. Attorney Zachary A. Cunha said: “I am pleased to see the team deservedly recognized with this award. This award is a testament to two things: the results that flow from effective coordination among our law enforcement partners, and the commitment of those agencies to dismantle and disrupt significant drug trafficking in our state and region,”  Cunha said in a news release that the eight-month Project Safe Neighborhoods investigation, dubbed “Operation Panamera,” relied on the combined expertise of different Rhode Island police units and task forces, whose joint work dismantled a drug-trafficking organization that imported hundreds of kilograms of fentanyl and cocaine from Mexico and Puerto Rico and redistributed them to drug dealers in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Vermont. The investigation culminated in the seizure of 13 kilograms of fentanyl, 11 kilograms of cocaine, 11 kilograms of marijuana and two kilograms of psychedelic mushrooms. In addition, law enforcement also seized $60,000 in cash, 10 vehicles and a handgun.

The 2016 film “Bleed for This” is based on his comeback from a devastating spinal injury. Now, for our feature story: Connecticut State Police are pulling over law-breaking drivers at less than half the rate they were at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. Troopers pulled over about 76,000 motorists in 2020, compared with about 157,000 in 2019, according to statistics compiled by the Institute for Municipal and Regional Policy at the University of Connecticut and reported Saturday by the Hartford Courant. Traffic stops have further dropped this year, despite data showing motorists are driving faster than ever. State police stopped about 59,900 vehicles from January to October, statistics show. Troopers also are writing fewer tickets — 105,000 in 2019, about 45,000 in 2020 and about 27,600 in the first 10 months of this year. Andrew Matthews, executive director of the state troopers' union and a retired state police sergeant, said three factors in the drop in enforcement have been decreased staffing, worries about contracting the virus and low morale caused by new police accountability laws. Because of retirements, he said there are about 300 fewer troopers than there were about 15 years ago, when staffing peaked at 1,283. Gov. Ned Lamont and Bridgeport state Rep. Steven Stafstrom, both Democrats, said staffing is a concern, but they doubted the accountability laws are to blame. The laws have limited police immunity from lawsuits and expanded the reasons officers' state certifications can be revoked, among other measures.

Rhode Island's governor reported the state's first case of the omicron variant of coronavirus in an adult who recently had traveled out of state. Gov. Dan McKee and state health officials said Saturday that the person is in their 20s, lives in Providence County and recently returned from travel in New York. They completed a primary vaccination series and had no record of a booster shot. Officials are working on contact tracing. The case was identified through the ongoing genomic surveillance program coordinated by the State Health Laboratories. Officials were expecting cases of omicron, given that the variant has been detected elsewhere in the region. McKee said in a statement: “Rhode Island is prepared. This is not cause for panic.” McKee plans to announce a set of actions next week to address the growing number of COVID-19 cases and alleviate pressure on the hospital systems, while keeping schools open for in-person learning and preventing economic disruptions to small businesses. McKee and the health department encouraged residents to get vaccinated, get a booster shot if they're already vaccinated, get tested and consider wearing a mask in crowded public places. McKee and state health officials are encouraging residents ages 16 and older to get a booster six months after their first vaccination. The state has had a high level of transmission since August. A holiday-season spike in cases and hospitalizations has hit even New England, one of the most highly inoculated corners of the country.

Any couple problems can be addressed through personal growth, since most relationship issues come from interlocking complexes. This episode talks about ways to co-create soulful love. In previous generations, societal structures such as marriage had a different purpose. Being happy in a romantic relationship was not necessarily a priority. In our society today, people want meaningful relationships in life, both romantic and platonic. People are looking for a deeper, more intimate relationship. Dr. Chelsea Wakefield, PhD, LCSW is our guest for EP63's Wise Walk and guides people to having more enriched relationships. As a relationship expert, Chelsea is a psychotherapist, couples therapist, author, educator, and international workshop and retreat leader. Most of her work is done as an associate professor at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences where she's director of the couples center. She trains other couples therapists, has her own clinical practice, and puts together workshops about relationships.  On our Wise Walk, Chelsea and I discuss the importance of knowing yourself, and bringing your whole and best self into any relationship. That includes knowing our triggers and shadows as well as getting in tune with who your partner is and not who you wish they could be. Honest awareness encourages individuals to identify what really matters and connect in relationships on a deeper level. Inspired by Chelsea's book The Labyrinth Of Love: The Path to a Soulful Relationship, she talks about the 6 Love Capacities, personal growth, and co-regulating to prompt reflection on these Wise Walk questions and more: Is there such a thing as soul mates? How can people look for suitors to create a soulful relationship? How can people reflect on their triggers? What can people do to find balance in co-regulating?    Chelsea suggests that the first step in choosing or being someone ready for a soulful relationship is someone with the willingness to grow. If you want learn to get a better grasp on your internal dialogue, and recognize the different relationship types, tune in to hear these Wise Walk questions: How does communication change as the nervous system develops? How are you applying what your nervous system is telling you into your everyday relationships? What types of relationships are you seeking right now, and how do they make you feel? Join this inspiring community to uncover a new sense of freedom, and be sure to follow and review the True Stride podcast as we continue to exchange our light and Heart Value with each other.   In this episode: [00:23] - Welcome to the show!

You have to be in a relationship because of who they are in that moment.” - Mary Tess “If you are noticing that you have these triggers or the shadow elements, how can you take responsibility for them? How can you communicate that in a different way that you are heard, understood, and appreciated for the work you're trying to do on yourself and how you're trying to co-create something different in the relationship because you want a different outcome.” - Mary Tess   Links and Resources: Mary Tess Rooney Email Facebook | LinkedIn | Twitter | Instagram Heart Value   Dr. Chelsea Wakefield, PhD, LCSW Email Facebook | LinkedIn | Twitter  The Labyrinth Of Love: The Path to a Soulful Relationship
